Tehran, SANA – Speaker of People’s Assembly Hadiyeh Abbas affirmed that Syria has always been and will remain a main supporter of the struggle of Palestinian people and their legitimate rights.
In her speech at the 6th International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Intifada (uprising) which kicked off in Tehran Tuesday, Abbas said that one of the main reasons that Syria is being targeted now is its principled stance in the defense of the Palestinian people and in support of the resistance front.
Abbas said that the events of the terrorist war imposed on Syria affirm that the main objective of the war is to weaken Syria’s role in supporting the Palestinian cause and the resistance front against the Israeli occupation and aggression, pointing out that the Zionist entity has formed a base to support terrorist organizations in Syria logistically and militarily, which confirms the strong correlation between Israel and the terrorist Takfiri project targeting Syria and the entire region.
Abbas noted that the holding of this conference comes under difficult circumstances and fateful challenges that face the Palestinian cause and the entire region in light of the present scheme aimed at liquidating this cause.
“Therefore, we believe that it is very important to come out with positions, plans and work mechanisms that would effectively contribute to supporting the struggle of the Palestinian people and unifying the Palestinians’ efforts in the face of the occupier as a way to liberate the land and restore legitimate rights and establish an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital,” Abbas said.
